Empoli vs Milan
Serie A, 6th round match
Milan will visit Empoli. Obviously Milan is off a poor start of the season. Nothing new I would say, Milan clearly once again wont be contender for the title. Currently this team is almost on the bottom of the standings with overall record 1-2-1. But, have in mind Milan already had one game in hand plus those leading teams played their games of the 6th round. That being said, Milan is currently with two games less. Potentially, if they would win both, Milan would be on the 4th position. So, just small note, current 16th position for Milan is not the real picture.
Also, it's clear Milan had tough schedule so far. At home they met with some of better teams, 2:1 vs Roma and 2:2 vs Atalanta (the last weekend game), while on the road they played Napoli (3:2 loss) who is the best side in the league after Juventus, and the only poor result for Milan was 1:1 draw away at Cagliari. That definitely was the away game where Milan missed the chance to take all three points.
In any case, Empoli is the weakest opponent for Milan so far, as on the road as well overall.
Empoli is off a week start. At home they were twice, defeated Cagliari while against opponent similar to this one today (Lazio), they have lost the game.
The home team is without Zajc who is suspended while Antonelli, Acquah and Pasqual are injured. Also Polvani and Rodriquez but these two are without played game since the season started.
For Milan Higuan, Montolivo, Strinic, Caldara and Conti are injured. Missing Higuan is pretty big blow but he is questionable so not definitely out. All other mentioned players are without played game in this seaaon.
